Put your best foot forward! Since we are in a business setting, it is advantageous to dress in business-like attire. This is a great opportunity to teach your children about voice level and professional manners. When you meet with your representatives, it is a good idea to plan in advance a few positive things to say about homeschooling. It is likely that you will know more than your legislator about how homeschooling works. He/she may ask some of the typical questions about homeschooling. Be prepared to respectfully answer these questions with facts and experience. Your representative may not agree with the educational choice you have made for your children – but remember the goal is to make a positive impression, not necessarily to change their opinion. Politeness and respect for him and his opinions will help encourage him to listen to you and your opinions. Often, legislators will ask kids questions about how he or she likes homeschooling, or what he likes about homeschooling. You may want to practice possible scenarios at home to help your children know what to expect.
